    I came across this this morning. Would you get a HTC Nexus?

    Next Gen Nexus 6 smartphone Could Be Manufactured by HTC [Report]

    *Update*
    http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/54850...m#.U0-yXHPD8m8

    now this sounds more like a guess or a wishlist then a rumor but which features would your like to materialize?

    20 MP camera does nothing for me, better sensors is where it's at.

    3,200 mAh battery sounds pretty damn good to me would love to see something around this number.

    dustproof and waterproof features; like I said on one of my other posts here, I dropped my N5 in about 2/3 inches of water fully submerged for about 15/20 Seconds and it's still in working order so this would be icing.

    not mentioned in the article but I've read it around; finger print scanner, mhmm I'm ehhh with that it's a fun feature I'd probably use it and replace it with my face unlock feature

    I think I would. If anything to add a sale to the Nexus line to help tell Google to keep it going.

    I'll buy whatever Nexus phone they have, regardless of who makes it. But it's probably a bit early to take any rumors seriously.

    The HTC M8 would be pretty old design for a October Nexus 6 launch. The HTC boom speakers are a useless feature to me since no one else wants to hear your phone. I catch enough flak for the loudness of my Nexus 5 when the phone rings with music in a sports bar. So I sure don't need boom speakers. I love my Nexus 5 but I would like to see what the LG G3 is like first since rumors of having a curved screen sure beats a HTC boom speaker for me. I would rather my phone physical size be used for the screen size with a tiny bezel than for wasting it on big speakers at the top or bottom that would never be used.

    Now a Nexus 8 tablet made by HTC with boom speakers would be something I would want to buy.

    I hope it doesnt have a curved screen.... They have the LG G Flex at one of the stores here and I don't see the benefit of this. So it fits awkwardly in your pocket?
    I know its supposed to fit your face better when you talk, and it does, but thats like 20% or less of what I actually use my phone for.

    I really hope they don't base the N6 off of the M7/8. I really like the look and size of the Nexus 5, and if it were to be as tall or wide as the M8, I definitely wouldn't consider buying

    This will be the first Nexus I don't covet...In fact when and if the N5 sees the price drop the N4 had when they needed to purge inventory last year. I'll likely just get another N5. It will take quite a phone to beat the N5.

    The Nexus phone line is one of the best in my opinion. Hopefully the Nexus 6 holds the newest tech, just like the Nexus 5 did.

    Couldn't agree more. If the nexus 6 has a curved screen I won't be buying.

    Same here! But there's no way it's going to have a 6 inch screen.

    Would you consider the Nexus 5 to have a pretty old design, too? It's basically in a slate or bar form factor with the volume buttons on the left and the power button on the right.

    The Nexus S and the Galaxy Nexus had curved screens, so there is a precedent for those in the Nexus line.

    I love the Nexus 5 design. A lot better than even other phones that aren't slate...

    What I'm trying to figure out is how this rumored phone would be different from the Google Play edition of the M8, which you can buy today. Maybe the Nexus version will just remove the microSD card slot, change the camera and pricing, and add wireless charging and Nexus branding? Still, I feel that Google and HTC needs to do something else to differentiate this from the M8 GPE. Otherwise, it feels redundant.

    I like a slate or bar form factor with the volume buttons on the left and the power button on the right design shape for a phone like the N5. Don't like all the wasted screen size to make a bigger bezel space for big speakers. That's HTC's big selling point a big boom speaker that is useless to me. Don't like what I am reading about the M8 camera. HTC is a great phone manufacture that doesn't make phones that fit my needs. I only buy unlocked phones and price is always a top priority.

    I want the N6 to be water resistant and all those speaker holes isn't good for that. I also like wireless charging that won't work with a metal case the M8 has. I would like the N6 case to be Kevlar like Moto X. I would be happy if HTC would build the N6 if the design was like the N5 since I'm not thrilled to read about the poor build quality coming from LG.

    What I want most is features from the Moto X on the N6 with always listening OK Google commands. I want a smarter phone with a tiny bezel not a boom box.

    If they too out the black HTC bar on the bottom, relocated the power button to the side, and changed out the camera, I would be super excited about an m8 based Nexus. Super build and front facing speakers plus Nexus software would be perfect.

    Now if only the release it on Verizon...

    Yeah, I'd buy a Nexus from Pantech as long as it's released for Verizon! I'm debating on getting the S5 now or waiting and hope that the upcoming Nexus phone is on Verizon

    i have to say the N5 is pretty damn strong i dropped it in my tub (filled with a good 1/2in of water, fully submerged for at least 15 seconds) the first few days it took 7+ hours to get a full charge but it got back to normal working order.

    Maybe Google simply wants to make a metal phone. HTC certainly has expertise in that area.

    Scott this isn't directed at you just the subject of metal cases.

    I just never got that metal feels premium argument with all the negative aspects of metal phones that mostly iPhone people push as their requirement for a cell phone. Metal cases can't use wireless chargers. I will never buy a phone that doesn't support wireless charging. Metal dents and scratches easy and shows the damage greater than other non-metal case types. Metal runs up the cost of manufacturing a phone. Metal will show discoloration where you touch it over a year from wear. Metal gets hot or cold to the touch due to weather or battery over heating more than other case surfaces. Over 60% of people use cases to protect the phone so it doesn't matter if it is metal or whatever case.

    One out of every three smart phones in the world including Apple are Samsung that has never used a metal case.
